Noesis refers to the experience of inner knowledge as valid knowledge, despite it being purely subjective (Hood, 1975). As per the LP Connection Classification scheme, Noesis is a positive, intense Zenith Experience, usually of short duration, but with the transfer of large amounts of cosmological/theological content.

Unfortunately, scientists still understand connection using the "magical" term "mystical experience."
